SPOKE ART hosts a number of themed group shows at their San Francisco and New York galleries, drawing inspiration from some of the most visionary artists in recent history. Their latest, hosted at the Building Bridges Art Exchange in Santa Monica, is a showcase of over one hundred artists from around the world, celebrating the films of Japanese film-maker and animator Hayao Miyazaki. The Miyazaki in Los Angeles Art Show draws inspiration from the Studio Ghibli director’s classic films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Howl’s Moving Castle, Ponyo, The Wind Rises, Spirited Away, and Princess Mononoke.
Exhibiting artists have each created unique works inspired by Miyazaki’s imaginative universe. Featuring a diverse array of painting, embroidery, sculpture and limited edition prints, they offer their unique perspective and interpretation of beloved characters and themes in Miyazaki’s films. Imbued with the legendary director’s sense of adventure, a deep reverence for nature, and strong female characters, this exhibit captures not only Miyazaki's artistic mythos but weaves new life and interpretation in through its stellar roster of contemporary artists.
